CLEVELAND (AP) - Manny Ramirez’s debut with Chicago has started with a groundout.

Leading off the second inning, Ramirez fell behind 0-2 in the count against Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco, fouled off a few pitches and then hit a grounder to shortstop Wednesday in his first at-bat with the White Sox, who believe he can help them catch the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central.

Criticized for not hustling at times, Ramirez ran hard to first base before being thrown out.

Ramirez, claimed on waivers from the Dodgers, is batting fifth _ between Paul Konerko and Mark Teahen _ as the designated hitter in manager Ozzie Guillen’s lineup for the series finale. Ramirez joined the White Sox on Tuesday, but only got as far as the on-deck circle to pinch-hit in the ninth inning.
